PBS KIDS’ newest super-hero cat will be joining the neighborhood next month! NATURE CAT, a new animated series that encourages children to explore nature debuts Wednesday, November 25, the day before Thanksgiving. Inspired by research on the health and educational benefits of spending time outside, NATURE CAT encourages families to get active and go on their own outdoor adventures.


The weekly action-adventure series stars an ordinary housecat Fred (voiced by SNL’s Taran Killam) who becomes his alter-ego, “Nature Cat”, backyard nature explorer extraordinaire, when his family leaves for the day.

Each episode, packed with humor designed for kids ages 3-8 – and their parents – provides science-based adventures to spark children’s interest in their own adventures, with the clever use of music and pop-culture references. Kids and parents can share their own discoveries and experiences as they observe and absorb the natural world around them through nature-based activities and ideas.

Voiced by an all-star cast parent will recognize from late-night TV fame, NATURE CAT harnesses the power of creative playtime with the quality science and technology children’s programming viewers have come to expect from PBS KIDS.  With the addition of NATURE CAT to the cadre of quality science children’s programming, PBS is continuing to lead the discussion to connect kids to science at a younger age.
